WHAT IS ConArte ?
ConArte is a civil society organism dedicated to promoting arts education in public schools, in communities in peripheral communities and with high social risk, to form new creative, expressive and self-awareness capacities. It promotes a culture of peace to help shape a more equitable, sensitive and inclusive society.
In its 14 years of experience, ConArte has become a benchmark by linking artistic training and experience with intercultural education, interaction with living community cultures, prevention and social reintegration, gender perspective, attention to people with disabilities, the recovery of public spaces and the impact on public policies.
It develops projects from its own methodologies and collaboration with other organizations in Mexico City, in various states of the republic and in other countries in Latin America, the United States, Africa and Europe.
Our mission is to contribute to shaping a more sensitive, equitable and inclusive society through the formation of democratic and participatory citizenships, using arts education peace-building techniques as tools for transformation.
We work to create an inclusive and equitable society in its diversity, where the arts and culture are the axis of sustainable human development and contribute to forming a culture of peace, through education that promotes new forms of self-awareness, coexistence, cultural expression, ethical and aesthetic development among Mexican children, young people and their families.
